I am afraid there is simply not much we can do about it. This problem should be reported to
OpenJDK / Sun / Oracle developers.

the resolve methods in the URIUtils class were introduced as a 
work-around for known bugs in the URI.resolve() methods. Some of these 
bugs were reported to Sun many years ago. And there's not much hope that 
they will be fixed soon.

I can try to create more work-arounds so that the tests pass.
